When Doves Cry - Prince

When Doves Cry- Prince. 6x6 Oil on Gessorbord. The reference photo for this one comes from Mary Villazon at Photos for Artists on FB. I knew the title of this one right off the bat with the recent death of Prince. This little guy looks so content though not crying at all. I love the coo coo coo! 
I usually post a link to the song, but in this hotel room...I'm crying over how slow the Internet is!

Stuck In The Middle With You- Stealers Wheel

Stuck In The Middle With You-Stealers Wheel. 8x8 Oil on Gessobord. I saved the reference photo a long time ago for this one from Uschi on Pmp-art.com. I have always loved lilacs, my grandma did too and they always remind me of her! The smell they emit is so sweet and will fill the whole house! 
Here is the music!

One Sweet World- Dave Matthews Band

One Sweet World- Dave Matthews Band. 6x6 Oil on Gessobord. The challenge this week on DailyPaintworks is to paint ice cream. I searched Pixabay and found this sweet photo of a young boy really getting into his cone! So sweet! 
From song facts.com I learned this! So the title seems to be perfect
  • In 2002, Ben and Jerry's created a Dave Matthews Band inspired ice cream called "One Sweet Whirled" as a tribute to this song. It is a combination of coffee ice cream, caramel, and marshmallow swirls. Ben and Jerry's and Dave Matthews Band both support socially responsible causes, and some proceeds from "One Sweet Whirled" go to the organization Save Our  Environment
     So the title seems to be perfect! Here is the music...

Strawberry Fields Forever

Strawberry Fields Forever- The Beatles. Finally...finally...I got to paint today! My fingers have been twitching to hold a brush for a month. I did a pet portrait two weeks ago, but have been off the thinner and linseed oil smell for a month or two! But to open my paints again and smell them and be creative....omg I'm in heaven! 
Here is the music.
